The Dialectic Of Rational Dynamicity: Strategic Philosophy And Philosophy Of Strategy
Posted on 9 September, 2021 by CEO
Often policy-makers and, in general, decision-makers do not lack advise or information; they are in many respects overwhelmed by advice and information. They do lack analyses, syntheses, and mainly criteria on which to base judgments. In the absence of suitable analyses, syntheses, and standards, all advice tends to become equivalent, and, ultimately, pragmatism and factionalism prevail. The dilemma of policy is not so much that it cannot act on what it has defined as useful and advantageous, but that the standards of utility and one’s interest are in need of redefinition. Furthermore, in the absence of suitable analyses, syntheses, and standards, practical actors and pragmatists are most apt to become prisoners of events. Therefore, people capable of transcending the requirements of the moment and thinking strategically and structurally are of vital importance. Without the skills and the talent of such people, policy is fragmented into a series of ad hoc decisions which subordinate strategy to tactics and make it difficult to achieve a sense of planned direction, "policy planning" degrades into a projection of familiar problems and mentalities into the future, and necessity is confused with reality, thus creating the illusion that one can avoid recourse to personal judgment, reflection, and responsibility as essential constituent components of policy-making. Without a great theory, there can be no great policy; and the greatness of policy is judged by its impact on reality, both the reality of the world and the reality of consciousness.
Dr. Nicolas Laos, in his book The Dialectic of Rational Dynamicity: Strategic Philosophy and Philosophy of Strategy, published by the R-Techno International Ltd, investigates fundamental philosophical and scientific questions, and, by providing a comprehensive and systematic training in ontology, epistemology, ethics, formal methods (mathematics and logic), and philosophy of history, he discloses the secrets of successful policy-making. From the perspective of the dialectic of rational dynamicity, which is thoroughly studied and exposed in this book, policy-making is a process for organizing information about the reality of the world as a tank of opportunities and about the reality of the actors’ consciousness as a tank of intentions, in order to help decision-making on the basis of the dialectic of rational dynamicity. Moreover, according to Dr. Laos’s dialectic of rational dynamicity, two equivalent definitions of policy-making are the following:
- The examination of questions related to the policy-making process, conducted with the intention to achieve a dialectical transcendence of the antithesis between realism and idealism and, hence, to affect the policy-making process.
- Analysis and synthesis that generate knowledge (processed information) in such a way as to improve the basis for policy-makers to restructure reality according to their intentionality.
